Homage to Nancy (Nasty) Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi may be the best friend that conservatives have. 

The seventy-six year old multi-millionaire who represents California's 12th District (San Francisco) has presided over the demise of the Democrat Party from her seat in The People's House.  Some Republicans had harsh words for her election to be House Minority Leader yet again. I take a very different approach. 

It's Ms. Pelosi who says that the Democrat Party has it right - and that the public simply doesn't understand how well they have it.

She's also the same politician who coined the word, astroturf, for the Tea Party, claiming that it was a fake grass roots movement because people took time off work, showed up to protests well groomed, and picked up their trash when they left. If the Republicans can keep Rep. Pelosi in House leadership for another 8 years or until she dies (whichever comes first). It may shrink the Dems to a few concentrated populations in California, New York, Massachusetts, some Indian reservations and ghettos. It's headed that way now but she can pound nails in that coffin.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the San Francisco democrat is the ninth wealthiest member of Congress and has a net worth of $197 million. She postures herself as "one of the plebs", and she's anything but. Rep. Pelosi typifies the coastal elite class that more and more makes up the Democrat Party.

75 Years Ago - This Morning

WH press secretary says WWII veterans should 
get over their ‘bitterness’ about Pearl Harbor attack.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is planning to visit Pearl Harbor, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the attack and I have no problem with that. However, the unprovoked, surprise attack on Pearl Harbor is something that we shouldn't ever forget. Barack urged us a couple of years ago to get over the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and World Trade Center (and the aborted attack on the White House). 

It's not about getting over something and moving on. It's about recalling history without any politically correct, revisionist lens. People who can do that are willing to make plans to avoid the situation that made it possible to successfully attack Pearl Harbor or New York and Washington, DC.
The classic book on the attack on Pearl Harbor is "At Dawn we Slept" by Gordon Prange. 
One of the best books on the Battle of Midway is "The Shattered Sword" by Jonathan Parshall and Anthony Tully.
There is a move in the US and in Japan to remove the necessity for dropping two atomic bombs on the Japanese homeland, which ended the war. Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard deal with this issue appropriately in, "Killing the Rising Sun".  The way I see it, (a) it saved American lives and (b) the Japanese had it coming. They could have surrendered and chose not to after having been warned.

But that was in the future on December 7, 1941.
